Krakow

Old Synagogue

  ul. Szeroka 24 ,   Kazimierz          (+48) 12 422 09 62     14 Sep 2018

Built on the cusp of the 15th and 16th centuries, the Old Synagogue serves as the oldest surviving example of Jewish religious architecture in Poland and is home to a fine series of exhibits that showcase the history and traditions of Polish Judaism. It is no longer a working synagogue. The English explanations assume no great depth of knowledge on the reader's part and are therefore a perfect primer on the subject. In the midst of all the glass cases stands the bimah enclosed in an elaborate, wrought iron balustrade. There are also changing temporary exhibitions, and the bookshop sells a fine selection of works related to Jewish Kraków in a number of languages.
